In November we spent a short weekend in Rainbow Beach, a few hours north of us in Queensland. Rainbow Beach is so named after the multicoloured sands that flow out of the cliffs onto the beach. Sounds gorgeous, I thought, but what I didn't realise until we got there was what a 4wd haven it was. If you want a peaceful walk by the ocean, Rainbow Beach is not the place to go. If you have a 4wd and want to play, or camp in idyllic areas you'd otherwise never reach, then Rainbow Beach is great. We don't own a 4wd, but by getting up before dawn I managed to capture some of the peace of the beautiful beach.
